When it comes to aging well, doctors say, don’t wait to start taking care of yourself. Bayview is following that advice, working on our “bones” in a remarkable transformation.
The initial “core” work being done, such as upgrading our mechanical and electrical infrastructure, is critical to Bayview’s continuing health. Bayview’s other internal work includes the relocation of the Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center’s activities area next to a bank of windows in a central location, where residents are now enjoying the upgraded surroundings. Over the next 17 months, we’ll also be focusing on a number of other areas: renovation of the dining room and lobby, enhancement of resident common areas, and the addition of new or upgraded amenities.
That takes care of Bayview’s bones. What about our outward appearance? You may have noticed construction trailers recently moved onto our visitor parking lot or the crane that helped move a construction elevator into place in August. As we progress through the project’s next phases, there will be additional visible signs of our development. Movement of equipment or supplies may require occasional street closures but will be kept to the minimum necessary.
Most exciting – construction will start early in 2017 on a new two-story addition on the northeast corner of Bayview’s grounds. The building will house a memory care residence and additional assisted living apartments. Furthermore, the public entrance will be transformed. In preparation of this part of the project, the visitor parking will close and the main entrance will be relocated to the Terrace entrance off of Queen Anne Drive Way. (Details will be on our website).
We’re thrilled about how we’re evolving – with a positive outlook and a lot of hard work, Bayview will continue to meet the needs of seniors today and tomorrow.
